Finally! Governmental oversight of U.S. Beef for Mad Cow

…The punchline of course is that it’s Japanese oversight in their quest to protect their own citizenry.

Other conditions accepted by the United States include allowing Japanese government inspectors to join surprise inspections conducted by U.S. government officials at beef-processing facilities. Tougher inspections of imported U.S. beef parts will be carried out during quarantine at all Japanese ports of entry.

Too bad we’re not afforded the same level of diligence.
